Avon Online Sales Recognition


The 2016 annual Avon President's Club Recognition luncheon for my district was held in May 2017. This is always a fun time to see my fellow Avon reps again. It is a time of fellowship and encouraging others of their top achievements. 

After another year of hard work I again received awards for my efforts. Although, truthfully, I absolutely love what I do! It doesn't even seem like work to me. Can you say that about your job? 

Due to my achievement in selling Avon online I was recognized on stage. I received an overwhelming response from other reps (emails, phone calls, Facebook requests, Facebook messages) asking me to help them learn how to sell online. Due to this, I decided to write a blog post with Avon tips for selling online for all of the Shining Stars Division and Western Stars Division representatives in addition to all reps who may be reading this. Hopefully, I can help my fellow reps to increase your earnings with Avon. Read on to find how to get Avon customers online

Tips for Selling Avon Online


After receiving the award for top Avon online seller for the Shining Stars Division, I was asked to give an impromptu speech with a few tips to the other representatives at the recognition luncheon. Well, I'm not a public speaker! "Oh no," I thought, "What am I going to say?" I'm actually a very shy person. Even though I'm not comfortable speaking, I said I would. I wasn't given much time to think about what tips to give, but I did summarize how I learned to sell Avon online. Listen for yourself my Avon tips and tricks.









Creative Ways to Sell Avon



Before I give you a few of my top tips for selling Avon online, I would like to give you a brief overview of my Avon story. You can also read my post, Is Selling Avon Online Worth It?  I started selling Avon in 2008 when someone hung a recruiting flyer on my door. Truthfully, I think I was my best customer. I had a teenage daughter that loved makeup so I stocked up for her and myself. I also started selling to our friends, relatives, and neighbors. These people are called your warm market because you know and feel comfortable talking to them. Before long, I knew I had to learn how to find Avon customers another way.

That's when I took the next step in my career by coming up with new Avon marketing ideas. I started taking brochures to different neighborhoods. I would either ring their doorbell and introduce myself or just hang a brochure on their door. I always had Avon brochures in my purse and I gave them out to everyone I would meet during my daily errands. Here are a few places I would hand out brochures. I would always ask if I could leave some brochures every campaign. Just think of businesses where people come and go often.
  • Bank Teller
  • Grocery Store Clerks
  • Post Office Clerk
  • Doctor Office Receptionist and Waiting Room
  • Dentist Office Receptionist and Waiting Room
  • My Workout Gym (Curves)
  • Local Mom and Pop Stores
  • Mail Service Stores
  • Schools
  • Day Cares
  • Book Stores


My Best Tip for Selling Avon Face-To-Face


My number 1 tip for boosting your traditional sales is to put a sign in your yard. I put an Avon sign and a realtor's flyer box in my front yard. I filled the box with current brochures. It was amazing! I got so many people coming by to pick up a brochure. My customer base really grew! I even got new recruits from this. I believe I had this sign up for several years before someone in my neighborhood complained to the city. I was then required to take it down.

I also have very good success with the Avon decals I have on my vehicle. People will even stop me at the grocery store for an Avon catalog. I love when people come to me, instead of me hunting them down.

Finally! Avon Tips and Tricks to Sell Online

Here's goes, Avon representatives, my attempt at giving my Avon selling secrets ideas. However, since I do so much to market Avon online it's hard for me to tell which of my efforts actually get me the customers. I started back in 2010 with consistent hard work. Many hours of trying different things to attract customers. Today there are many reps that have really excelled in selling online with their own creative ideas and talents. Please don't expect  to instantly start getting sales, as it takes a long time,work and dedication.

#1 Avon Online Selling Tip 


The first place to start when selling Avon online is to set up your social media profiles. If you don't know how to do this, do a Google search. You can find posts, images, and videos on almost anything you need on the internet. I would suggest you be consistent in your name or handle on all accounts. I didn't do that but I wish I would have. Read Avon's policies in choosing your name. Make sure you write a bio on each profile. Include your picture for a personal touch. The same color scheme would be great also. The social media that I use and suggest are:
I would suggest that we follow each other on our social media accounts. My links will be at the bottom of this post. Post your links in the comments so we can all build our followers.

#2 Avon Online Selling Tip 


Set up your profile on youravon.com by going to Web Office - eStore - Personalization Tool. Make sure to include your phone number and/or address on the Personal Web Page, Find a Rep Tool Online, and Find a Rep Tool Phone. Also fill out your Interests and Why I love selling Avon section. When customers are looking for a rep, a list of representatives will come up. By having your city, phone number, Interests and Why I love Selling Avon filled out, customers will more likely call you than another.

#3 Avon Online Selling Tip

 

My suggestion is to put a personal picture of yourself on your eStore. Go to Web Office - eStore - Edit your eStore. Also update your About Avon and Me section on your website. By doing both of these your online customers will feel like they know you personally.





#4 Avon Online Selling Tip


Get on the first page of Google when people are looking for a local Avon Rep. Do an online search for Avon rep Loveland, Colorado. You should see my Google Business Page listing with my picture on the right side of the screen. Start your Avon Google Business page to get found online by people in your area.

#5 Avon Online Selling Tip


Put labels on your brochures with your eStore web address and the current Avon coupon. The latest code is WELCOME10 where customers get 10% off any size online order. This code is only good for one time use. Don't forget to include your Avon eStore address on your business cards. Hand these out to everyone you see and hang them on business bulletin boards.


#6 Avon Online Selling Tip


Share the Avon Social Media Center posts and videos on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Google Plus. Don't post them all at once. Try to post them several times a day. You can also go to your Avon eStore and share the individual products by clicking on the icons below each image. Be creative with your descriptions. You can even do Facebook live or Youtube videos of product reviews. It's a good idea to sign up for a time-saving social media scheduler like Buffer. With this app you can schedule your posts to go out at different times daily. This is a free service for storing 10 posts in your queue at one time. The $10 a month paid version gives you extra social networks and 100 posts in the queue at a time.





#7 Avon Online Selling Tip


Many of you have been asking about the eBook that I used back in 2010. The name of it is, Internet Marketing For Avon Representatives. It can be purchased on Amazon for $.99 for a Kindle. The great tip from this book was the special code that you could add to your blog. However, that code is no longer needed since all product urls now contain your specific estore information. Some information in this book is outdated but it still has some very good information in it. The author is a top Avon online seller today. Her and her husband helped me get started with lots of tips on how to market Avon online.



#8 Avon Online Selling Tip


Starting an Avon blog is a great Avon selling secret. However, I must warn you that it takes a lot of hard consistent work. I have done tons of online research on this topic to get where I am. As a matter of fact, I still research because the Google algorithms change quite often. I have two Avon blogs, Beauty with Mary and Think Beauty Today. The first one is hosted by Blogger. It's easy and free. The second one is from Wordpress.com. I don't advise you to use the free wordpress.com version. The best version is wordpress.org where you pay for a hosting provider and manage your plugins and software updates. You can do an online search on how to set up a blog on either of these platforms. The ebook mentioned in #7 also gives help on setting up an Avon Blogger blog.



#9 Avon Online Selling Tip


Here is a tip that you may already know about. Avon President's Council Member and Silver Ambassador, Dianne Hernandez, was asked by Avon to give a webinar on her suggestions for selling Avon online. She earned this top sales level by selling only online. If you haven't listened to this webinar, it is awesome. She truly is an amazing online marketer.

#10 Avon Online Selling Tip


Here's my last tip for you. Many of you may also have heard of the free and paid training by Emily Seagren, successful Avon rep. She gives free tips on how to sell Avon online successfully. She also has paid Avon training. You can also follow her Makeup Marketing Online Facebook group where you can find great support, ideas, and training from her and other reps.




If you aren't already an Avon representative, I would love to have you join my team. I will then give you additional marketing tips to get your online sales a boost. I would love to have you join me at the next recognition celebration and celebrate your success.
